Taylor Farms is grateful to be this year’s honoree at the American Cancer Society’s Monterey Fashion Show Celebration of Life.
The ACS traditionally dedicates the day to a company or individual that “has inspired others and illustrates the true meaning of making a difference.”
“The fashion show is not only uplifting, it’s a mission driven event – to find better treatment and a cure for this disease. The tradition of the fashion show is to dedicate the whole day to a company or individual who inspires others and illustrates the true meaning of making a difference, and Taylor Farms does just that. As the honoree this year- Bruce Taylor and Taylor Farms certainly exemplify the true meaning of giving and making a difference – and they have been making a difference for 21 years, supporting the fashion show since the beginning,” Sponsorship Chair, Shirley Lavorato
The annual Celebration of Life Fashion Show, themed “In the Spotlight” this year at the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel, took place on Friday, April 15th. The event included activities such as a silent auction, a luncheon, entertainment, and a fashion show featuring a number of models still fighting cancer and defying the odds.
The premier event is one of a kind in the country, bringing the community together for a cause — helping save lives, helping people stay well and get well, helping to find cures, and fighting back against a disease that has taken too many lives.
For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what is learned through research and turning it into action, ACS has contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2005. That means avoiding about 650,000 cancer deaths and creating the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 11 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year.
Taylor farms is deeply honored by this recognition, and we are proud of our ongoing commitment to making a difference in the communities where we live and work.
